Difference in the stress, anxiety and depression level is seen among medical students living in hostel and home.


To assess the difference on personality dynamics of Hostellers and residential MBBS students of II and V Semester.

Material and Methods

The participants consisted of 120 MBBS students of 1st and 2nd professional in the age group 18–23 years. The students were assessed at their 1st professional and 2nd Professional examination duration respectively by using NEO Five Factor Personality Inventory (NEO FFI). Binary logistic regression analysis was performed to calculate odds ratio (OR).


Study concluded that as compared to day scholar students, hostilities showed significant difference on major dimensions of personality such as neuroticism, openness, agreeableness, extraversion and conscientiousness.


The anxiety experience was more common due to academics in medical students and seen predominantly among hosteller medical students. Strategy development for eliminating anxiety is necessary for promoting healthy and skilled life.
